This is the group for people who want to discuss Drupal's social networking tools. These tools include modules like Buddylist, Organic Groups, Invite, FOAF, Private message, and so forth. Sites that currently do successful social networking are:
The goal of this group is to foster communication between the developers of Drupal's social networking modules, discuss roadmaps, and collect community input.
I am looking for a drupal developer to assist me with the development of a social network powered by drupal. This would be a relatively simple site including basic social network functionality including profiles, groups, etc, a classified section, and a section that allows users to share content with one another.
I want to develop a simple site and quickly and will discuss compensation if you are interested in the project.
You might be interested in an experimental platform based on Drupal 5.1 that we are making for small linguistic entities. Basically it delivers the capability of speaking, along with reading, by introducing an added MP3 vocal file to all nodes and comments.
We look for volunteer developers and translators to localize the platform into other languages, so feel free to add requests to join the alpha stage. Bear in mind that alpha really means alpha...
Alhamdulillah, it's on. It is meant as professional and business networking and online community for serious people, specialists, doctors, lawyers, and entrepreneurs
Built with Drupal of course :)
We are working on it as we speak :) The site is hosted by the most trusted web server in Malaysia
This is not Myspace or Facebook type - the SN service is a serious project and the target audience is the professional adults and businesspersonsRead more
We are planning to build site that includes Social Networking, Educational Media, and an Online Store.
I see that http://goingon.com is a Drupal site that does social networking. Is this the premier Drupal site doing social networking right now? Does anyone know how much customization is required beyond plugging in available modules is required to create something like GoingOn? Are there other Drupal sites as developed or more developed in social networking than GoingOn?
I would appreciate any information or thoughts on this.
I am looking for Drupal developers interested in producing an identity game based in an online social networking system. I can provide for interested parties a pitch for a televised version that has been making its showbiz rounds about a week now. However, before you get the wrong idea about my intentions, let me assure you that the online game is not solely a vehicle for attracting the attention of producers and television audiences. I came to this idea while trying to conceive of the basis for an open source social networking platform.Read more
Anyone have interest in a Facebook single sign-on module? We'll be working on this this week and wanted some development help and/or ideas. With Facebook's new application API this is going to be huge to allow Facebook users to seamlessly sign-in to Drupal sites for use in Facebook Applications.
After reading a lot of forums around and deciding to build my own social networking site, I have created a list of modules that I think we might need to build one:
I am working on the complete tutorial and probably, later a code base as well to be released back to Drupal community as I progress in my project.
We have a requirmenet for a part-time PM for one of our projects. The following are the details:

• Participates in activities of the Drupal user community (ideal but not essential)
Greetings fellow Drupallers!
I began working on OpenMusic, a social network that aims at letting fans help music artists. By giving appropriate roles to its fans - thus getting them involved - an artist can build a network of valuable friends where each can provide a service to help the artist.
Ok, here is the call, too many need this instead of waiting till June 2007 when the author wnats to upgrade it. He states that it is pretty much striaght forward to follow to drupal upgrade guide on its own.
Let's do a project for it and then we do it togather, since with 1000 eyes upon it the bug rate is low enough!!Read more
For an upcoming citizen journalism project we need to set up a moderation procedure for stories that is not cumbersome. Moderation can be done in many ways in Drupal.
Can anyone suggest the best module combo that can do this?

Allow action before requiring user signup (create node anonymously first, then prompt to register/log in)
Think this is the most applicable group. Prompting users to sign up before getting to see what your site is all about is super lame. Look at http://www.chipin.com right now. You can create an event right off the bat, simple.
So for our Drupal rewrite I want to allow anonymous users to create nodes then have them register/login to user accounts in the same process as a secondary screen.Read more
The buddylist module needs some love. I'd like to see it have a 1.0 release in the next week or so. To do that, I want to see this list of issues get some reviews and a lot more testing of the current 5.x-1.x-dev tarball. As you can see here, a number of patches have gone in recently, so the current code needs testing. Thanks for your help with this effort.
I want to develop a module where a registered user can design their own theme (using a color.module theme) and upload their logo. Then, this theme and logo will be saved to the filesystem and will show on any of that user's full node page views (my usernode, my blogs, etc. all have my custom theme/logo). It's like MySpace except you have a controlled set of colors/logo, instead of slopping CSS into some About Me section.Read more
I wrote a module derived from the drupal Video module to build a Youtube-like platform.
The site can be seen at http://www.kaouenn.net
- Creative commons licenses support
- auto transcoding to flash flv (with ffmpeg), with load balancing support (transcoding can be done outside the web server). Video formats supported include mpeg, realmedia, wmv... In fact the ffmpeg supported formats
- support video and audio only
The transcoding part is done with shell scripts updating the drupal DB through the XMLRPC interface.Read more
I was wondering if there is a Install Profile for Social Networking Sites.
I checked it up at the Distribution profiles group and searched for "Social Networking" and found nothing. Are there any efforts in building a install profile for social networking sites? I checked up at Social Networking Sites and found nothing about installation profiles.
Has there been already an effort.
And if not a installation profile, then can we formulate a site recipe?Read more
I've been a drupal fan for almost 6 weeks! I've done one site and now I'm on to a fairly big one.
It's a job search site that wants to go beyond the norm... think monster.com meets eharmony.com... and I'm trying to determine the best approach to setting up the 26 "points of commonality". - ie. how people will get matched with the job of their dreams...
I am very open to suggestions. I know php fairly well... (I would have done this from scratch before I adopted drupal...)
Is taxonomy the way to go?
I know CCK offers great abilities to have custom forms and fields...
HuffingtonPost is looking for some great drupal developers. We have various positions open, one is for a full time developer here in our NYC Soho office. We have a couple projects that would be better suited for contract work and we're willing to look at companies as well as individuals.
Experience working in Perl and MovableType a big plus for one project, so if you know anyone with that background please send them this way.
Its an exciting time of serious growth for HuffingtonPost and this is a really interesting opportunity for the right people.Read more
